In truth, the merging point of three nations - Laos, Burma and Thailand is nothing special, yet it attracts thousands of tourists each day to take pictures beside one of the many signboards that read "Golden Triangle." This zone was also once world-famous for its notorious drug trafficking, as there used to be many opium fields around here. However, the local people now sell mostly souvenirs and handicrafts displayed in small shops lined along the main road. The lush green hills and the rivers converging add to the natural charm and beauty of this area.
